The Belcampo Way
Meat you can trust, start to finish
Belcampo began as a 30,000 acre farm at the base of Mt. Shasta on a mission to change an industry. That farm is now known as the Belcampo Estate and it’s where our team works tirelessly, not just farming, but establishing the climate-positive, humane practices and premium-quality meat standards we’re so well known for—or what we call ‘The Belcampo Way’.
We’re so proud of our farm, that we invite visitors year-round to camp and to enjoy programs like our Family Farms Stays and Meat Camps, sharing knowledge on regenerative farming, butchering and how to prepare and grill our meat to perfection. All this is part of our commitment to integrity and transparency. Because we want to be the meat you can trust, start to finish.Ask Us Anything
How we're growing
to feed you
Small farms delivered straight to your door
It all started on our Belcampo Estate farm in Gazelle, CA, with a mission to deliver meat you can feel good about—meat that is good for you, good for the animals and good for the planet. While the vast majority of our meat comes from the Belcampo Estate, Belcampo Farms is growing to include a network of carefully vetted, certified producers committed to expanding the impact of our mission. We’re transforming the food system one farm, one community, one table at a time.
How we choose our partner farms stays the same…
How we choose our partner farms
Raising a new standard calls for, well, standards. We’re committed to helping small farms across the country grow into the best farms they can be. We’re helping our partners to become:
1. Certified Humane®
Humane certification is the gold standard for the kind and responsible treatment of farm animals. Farms that are Certified Humane® have been third-party verified and meet standards for feeding, access to the outdoors, and processing that ensure highest quality of life for animals at all phases of their lives.
Pasture-raised animals spend their lives feeding in a way nature intended. Belcampo Farms and partner farms raise animals on organically grown pasture–meaning pasture that is not treated with synthetic fertilizers or pesticides – foraging and grazing to their hearts’ content.
Regenerative agriculture is a holistic approach to farming and raising animals that produces healthier food for people, restores top soils, and respects animals and their natural behaviors. Regeneratively farmed meats are good for animals, good for people, and good for the planet. Win-win-win.

The native grasslands, rainfall and Mediterranean climate of the Lascano Ranch in the Rocha region of Uruguay make for some of the world’s most premium finishing pastures for grass-fed and finished beef. We have partnered with three small multi-generational family farms in Uruguay -- the Dayman Farm near the town of Salto, Los Puestos near the town of La Coronilla, and Las Nutrias near the town Carlos Reyles -- who are all finishing their cattle on the premium pastures of Lascano to bring you the best Certified Organic, grass-fed and finished humanely raised beef from Uruguay. The meat is shipped by boat to reduce our carbon footprint, and wet aged during transport to increase tenderness. Raised #thebelcampoway in Uruguay.
